An exciting second round of the Masters saw another Australian move to the top of the leaderboard, our Chinese teenager make the cut and a host of top names jockeying for position.

Marc Leishman slipped just one place from leading to second, as another Australian Jason Day moved to the top of the leaderboard after a storming round two.

At opposite ends of the spectrum, Tianlang Guan became the youngest player to ever make the cut at Augusta despite a penalty for slow play, while Freddie Couples maintained his love affair with the course as he sits in second.

With Tiger Woods still in touch despite a huge slice of bad luck and a leaderboard stacked with the world's top players, it promises to be a thrilling weekend.

Here's who said what after round two of the Masters.

Tianlang Guan

Chinese schoolboy Tianlang Guan made the cut despite being handed a one-shot penalty for slow play towards the end of his second round. European Tour chief referee John Paramor docked the 14-year-old a stroke on the 17th, meaning he had to sweat it out before finally making the cut by the skin of his teeth.

A flying second round put Jason Day at the top of the leaderboard. NO Australian has ever won the Masters and now they have two in the top three - and Day is determined to end the jinx for his country at Augusta.
